The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
So, I love the anime, Hunter X Hunter. And earlier I was looking around on the interwebs for a Hunter X Hunter mod for Minecraft. I couldn't find one. But what I did find where requests. Many people wanted this mod, so why not make it!?
It will include many weapons such as: Gon's fishing pole, Hisoka's cards, Killua's skateboard (May be a weapon, might be a mobility item. Not sure yet), Kurapika's chains, Melody's flute, and tons of other ones. I am planning on having at least one weapon for every almost every character.
I am also planning on adding Nen, which you can choose at the beginning of the game which characters Nen and abilities you want.
Yet another aspect that might be considered part of the weapon category is Greed Island Cards. What I want, is for random cards to drop out of slain mobs, and found in temple and dungeon chests. There is about 200 cards in all. When you right click on one of these cards it special effect would happen. Weather that may be summoning a sword, summon a monster, or even allowing flight. One type of card would be the Steal Card, which you could use on a mob, and their ability would be place in the card. If it were a creeper, you could click with it in your hand and cause an explosion around. Stuff like that.
Next up would be Mobs. I am not entirely sure how this one would work. Possibly have character mobs, or maybe Phantom Troupe enemies. Not sure...
Anyway that's what I am hoping for. If you guys like the idea, don't be afraid to show some support! If you have any suggestions or constructive criticism let me know! Thanks!
Ooh, a Hunter X Hunter mod. I've been searching for one for ages, since I don't have any kind of knowledge in modding and can't make one for myself. So, if you don't mind, I have a few suggestions:
1.For the Nen abilities, you could do what other RPG games are doing: a skill tree system. Basically, you have a number of skill sets (or skill trees) for each category of Nen and have the player decide which tree to develop. It would be great to have the entire system of Nen integrated, such as the ability to develop in other categories of Nen with varying degrees of difficulty.
A leveling system would accompany the skill tree system, which goes like this: if you obtain a certain number of experience points (like in vanilla Minecraft), you could avail of a certain ability in a category, with varying prices in accordance with the Nen system in the anime.
2. For the mobs, I would suggest doing either one or all of these: some Magical Beasts (like the Kiriko), some of the beasts in Greed Island (like the Remote Control Rat, or just include the entirety of Greed Island), and the Chimera Ants. I'd also suggest to not include the main characters, nor any of their weapons (except for their abilities), unless you're also doing a story mode-type thing, so that the mod would kind of like "fit in" with the player's individuality. like in the anime.
3. Now for the fun part. For the structures, you could do something like one of the mods in the Hexxit modpack. I don't remember what it's called, but it makes towers with matching bosses. You could have the palace in East Gorteau pop up in random places all over the map, as well as the underground factories in NGL, the Heavens Arena, the Chimera Ant nest, Zevil Island-type challenges, and some other structures.
I'm no modder, which is bad since I have all these great ideas in mind, but I would offer every ounce of help I can. Those were my suggestions. I hope that wasn't too complicated!
